Peace Out, Powder Pink!

Today I am wrapping up my tributes to five very special colors – Stampin’ Up!’s 2017-2019 In Colors that are retiring on June 3. If you’d like to see my goodbyes to the other retiring colors, click below:

Dear Powder Pink,

I’m going to be honest with you – when I first set out to honor each of the five retiring 2017-2019 In Colors, I thought I’d have to combine you with one of the other colors. I could only think of a handful of times I’ve used you in projects, so I thought I would need to tack you on to a post that honors another color. Boy, was I wrong! I’ve reached for you A LOT more than I expected – as I started going through my cards from the past two years, I realize you’ve been a huge part of my projects. Thanks!

We have other pinks to play with, Powder Pink, but we will still miss your softness. Sad to see you go.


Powder Pink, Stampin' Up! 2017-2019 In Color, www.stampwithbrian.comThis soft, sweet pink has been a part of our lives for two years, but it’s time to say goodbye. If you aren’t ready to let go, this is a great time to stock up on some of your favorite Powder Pink products – papers, inks, ribbons, etc. Once these items are gone, they are gone – so don’t wait.
